Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
the ankle may be immobilized for 10 days without weight bearing on it unless the sprain is of grade one or two (mild). This can only be ascertained on MRI of ankle.Feeling of numbness and tingling can be related to nerve or circulatory insufficiency due to local swelling if any and may subside
